Congratulations on solving your question about repeating audio file entries within a Playlist text file.
Your detailed explanation inspired me to explore the possible differences between end-of-line characters used by TextEdit (Mac app) and Notepad (Win exe ). I think the Mac end-of-line character produced by TextEdit (LF only) is not compatible with the end-of-line characters that the Clip Sport (and Clip Jam) require to properly read successive lines in Playlist files (CR and LF).
Your clever solution is to clone a text line produced by mp3tag and then change the internal information without deleting the hidden end-of-line characters (for CR and LF).
Here is an introduction to this complicated topic.
There are likely a wide variety of solutions to the Mac TextEdit end-of-line limitation for your needs. Here are two.
1) Create a simple text file with several end-of-line entries copied from a working Playlist file. Use this separate file as a "copy and Paste" resource for your future endeavors.
2) Use the text editor app NOTEPAD++ that is available with "Wine Bottler for OSX"
(Wine Bottler is the app the authors of mp3tag use to make their Mac-compatible version.)

I feel super proud that I managed to do it! It is not like I know a lot about computers. And it is some kind of culture among people who know computers that they think it is beneath them to explain properly. As if I would explain to you when you want to knit a sweater: "Then you do the rib there, You don´t know what a rib is? Hmph! Well, then I can´t help you" haha

About having a source-file for the line endings: I suppose you can just get someone you know to mail you a playlist file (that works) and use that as source. Then it is not even necessary with Mp3Tag.
